Is Your Booth Closing?
In March, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced plans to close 62 part-time token booths in the subway system. Booth clerks - known as station agents - would be replaced by a combination of MetroCard vending machines and HEET's - which are floor-to-ceiling "High Entry/Exit Turnstiles" activated by MetroCards.
Many groups - including the Straphangers Campaign - oppose these closures because they will force riders to choose between their safety (entering at unstaffed locations) and convenience (having to travel further to staffed main entrances.)
